Ranchi: Jharkhand Labour Minister
Chandraprakash Choudhary on Friday said the workforce from China
engaged by a private industry in Bokaro district were working
on employment Visa.

His reply came on a pending query of March 11 raised
by opposition MLAs as to whether the workforce from China were
working on tourist visa or employment visa and why local
were not given preference in the private company.

Stating that the company had recruited 1162 foreign
workforce, including from China, the minister said
Electrosteel, acquired private land to set up its company.

When the opposition raised some more queries like land
acquisition and recruitment issues, Speaker C P Singh asked
the minister to head a team and nominate CPI-ML-Liberation MLA
Vinod Kumar Singh, JVM-P MLA Samresh Singh and Ajsu party
legislator Umakant Rajak to go into other details.
